A new beginning commences

You can't go back and make a brand new start but you can start today and make a brand new ending.
-Whit Criswell

It makes sense, doesn't it?

Right after graduating from university, I didn't know what exactly I wanted to do with my life. I just woke up each day getting by and enjoying a carefree existence. Now that I am turning 25, I realized I need to make concrete dreams; visions of the future; define my territories; discover myself, acknowledge my limitations and so on.

It's not that I didn't have any direction, I did but because life presented itself with many opportunities, it made me indecisive . I made many back-up and contingency plans but my original plan is vague and abstract.

Having experienced both the joys and harshness of the real world, I can say that I have matured as a person. For this, I am thankful to my family and friends who have in every way support my decisions even when I was wrong and they were right. My boyfriend also helps me become aware of my strengths and weaknesses so I can work out to maximize my good points and reconstruct my attitude towards my low points. Surely, God has strategically placed them in my life because they help him shape me into how I can truly be perfect.

I'm turning 25, there's no point going back to relive old memories or to regret over my failures. I have become who I am because I chose to and I can be what I want to be in the future because I will and have decided to.

life is always a never ending process of beginning and end. i wish i was 25 years old again. and if i will be given a chance to be in that stage for the second time, i will be more brave to do those things that i regret now.

We need to understand that we cannot change our past. The only thing is to start making the change today. Who we are today is because of the choice we made yesterday. And who we are tomorrow will depend on our choice today.

Never afraid to make mistakes. We can learn from our mistakes but we also need to be wise to learn from other people's mistakes.

Always ask the Lord for direction and He will give you the wisdom to know the right path for His word is a lamp unto thy feer and a light unto thy path (Ps 119:105).

Happy 25th Birthday. God bless you richly.
